At Apple Chemie, our commitment to innovation and our devotion to New Product Development has discovered a new polymer, called ViscoFlux.

We would like to introduce you to this new technology (patent pending).Molecular weight of the PCE polymer, its charge density ,length as well as density of side chains and ratio of the length of the backboneto length ofside chains determinethe adsorption behavior of the PCE including the amount adsorbed & extent of the surface of the cement particles occupied & amount adsorbed extent of the surface of the cement particles occupied & left free for water for hydration. Depending on the sensitivity of the link between the backbone (comb body) and the pendant side chains (teeth of the comb) to highly alkaline pore solution, the PCEs can be classified into 2 broad categories-

Apple Chemie's Latest contribution towards addressing the ever changing needs & requirements of the construction industry is the introduction of new generation superplasticizers based on Advanced Polycarboxylate Ether (APCE) chemistry for the first time in India as Viscoflux Technology (VFT). This is a revolutionary technology which can provide flexible solutions to the consumer with consistent quality standards. This technology not only enhances the quality of concrete but also adds value to the consumer by reducing the wear and tear Stof the equipments and increasing their overall working efficiency.

Superplasticizer Technology



Conventional PCE Technology



Viscoflux Technology (VFT)

Viscoflux Technology is used to produce superplasticizer based on Advanced Polycarboxylate Ether(APCE) chemistry. Polycarboxylate Ether(PCE's) are comb or star shaped polymers with specific molecular features. These special features enable the dispersion of cement particles due to their absorption on cement particles resulting in the electrostatic repulsion plus steric repulsion (hinderance) caused by the thickness of the absorbed polymer layer.





Type I - Slump Retaining Type / Water Reduction

Type II - High early strength & Water reduction

In case of SNF (3rd Generation) superplasticizer, the workability of concrete is adequate for maximum 90 minutes.PCE enable retention of the slump for 150 mins while ViscoFlux provides fluidity to concrete for more than 200 minutes. ViscoFlux not only enables early strenth development but also shows as increased strength over entire curing period. This allows reduction in cycle time of formwork and in turn a considerable amount of time saving on the overall project execution.
